A digital object identifier (DOI) is a persistent identifier used in scholarly publishing to identify and link to a piece of work. DOIs are considered by numerous journals to be mandatory for citation and can be assigned to datasets, preprints, research articles, websites, and other scholarly works. Assigning a DOI does not preclude submission to journals.

DOIs on Authorea are issued via Crossref with the following prefix 10.22541 and a unique suffix.

Once a DOI is issued to a piece of scholarly work, changes can no longer be made. On Authorea, however, we allow "DOI versioning" meaning articles can be updated and assigned new DOIs to allow for dynamic articles.
